Austrian filmmaker Thomas Antonic will screen and answer questions about One More Step West Is the Sea, his award-winning film about ruth weiss (lower-cased on purpose), a legendary poet born into an Austrian Jewish family who fled the Nazis and emigrated to the United States in 1939. In the late 1940s and early ’50s she performed her poems in Chicago’s “Art Circle” and in New Orleans’ French Quarter. After hitchhiking across the USA, she ended up in San Francisco’s bohemian quarter of North Beach, and in her 70s finally received the recognition she deserved.
